The groundbreaking will be held at the future site located behind Burr School at 129 Ledyard Street. 

The project is made possible by big donations from their neighbors: The Hartford, Stanley Black and Decker, and Bank of America, all pledging millions of dollars to the project.

“The corporate community is really rallying behind this purpose,” said Gray.
